Memory quilt

20140321-181509.jpg

I’m making each of my children quilts from their old clothes.

My sister says this is a waste of money spent but I say it’s priceless! I have a memory associated with most of their clothes and one day I can share them all with them!

Mom made the platypus with fleece and flannel and stuffed him with flax seed so you can put him in the microwave to warm him up.She tested scraps of material in the microwave for 3 minutes on high with a cup of water first. Only heat for 1 1/2 minutes though. She over tested to make sure the fabric was okay for the microwave which it is and it only needs a minute and a half to warm up.

She made the cute little bunny out of an old t-shirt which my son will now play with! 🙂

Mom calls the goose… Lucy Goosey. She made it out of a paint cloth from Home Depot and some of the orange fabric we love. That painter cloth was also used for the bench cover and rocker cover. Sure does get around!

And last but definitely not least as the giraffe is my son’s favorite! This is actually the second she’s had to make so far because he wore the first one out to bits is made out of flannel.

These are great gifts and even super cute to display in the baby room!
